Virtual Excellence At Brown 2020

Excellence at Brown is a free, writing-focused seminar program that orients incoming students to Brown’s academic and campus culture. This year, Excellence at Brown is adapting to the virtual scene by hosting a series of webinars featuring panel discussions by Excellence student leaders and facilitators, distinguished Brown professors, and Writing Center staff members.

This Excellence At Brown webinar series will help incoming students understand the centrality of writing within Brown’s Open Curriculum, offer strategies for achieving writing excellence, share writing support resources across the curriculum (STEM, social sciences, and humanities concentrators), and gain insight into how writing is meaningful both within and beyond classroom settings at Brown.
